Big ideas, inspiration and action! Amsterdam will be buzzing with events on innovation in education from 15-20 April. TEDxAmsterdamED, Startup Weekend and Professional Rebel will combine three great events supporting and connecting new ideas in education.
Under the banner #BornToLearn TEDxAmsterdamED will conclude the week with talks from thought leaders and innovators in the education world. This will take participants on a journey of learning with a particular focus on how learning is connected from ‘the cradle to the grave’.
Before this, the events will kick off a group of professionals and decision-makers in education hopping on their bikes. They will meet some of the frontrunners of the EdTech startup scene in Amsterdam during the The Future of Education Tour on 15 April. This will start with a keynote talk at THNK and allow participants to meet various education startups throughout the day, such as Bomberbot, Konnektid & ProctorExam. They’ll learn how startups think and act while cycling from one location to the next.
The inspirational bike tour will lead straight into a jam-packed weekend. With the motto: “No Talk, All Action” Startup Weekend helps people to take their first steps to become an entrepreneur. At a Startup Weekend event you turn a new idea into a startup in just 54 hours. For this occasion, Startup Weekend is organizing an event focused on new ideas in education. Hosted at the inspiring location of WeWork Startup Weekend Amsterdam will bring together over 80 education changemakers, developers, designers and business specialists working on new startup ideas. The teams will pitch their ideas again on Sunday evening to a jury of both education and startup experts.
For the 6th straight year 100 startup enthusiasts, designers, developers, and marketeers will get together to pitch ideas, form teams and launch startups in just 54 hours. Guided by experienced mentors you can take a peek into what it’s like be an entrepreneur and launch a startup.
No idea, no problem!
Startup Weekend is for everybody who wants to join. Even if you don’t have a startup idea or any prior experience you can still join, learn, have fun and start building a business together.
The weekend promises to be a unique high energy startup experience.
Over the last 5 years more than 600 attendees have gone through the startup weekend experience bringing in some cool startups to Amsterdam. Last years winner Bucket Buddies has gone successfully through the StartupNext program and are still in full stride building the company.
Looking for a reason to join? Here is what last years winner has to say about it:
“As a newcomer to SW I went with an open mind, not really knowing what to expect but aiming to get to know local entrepreneurial minds, learn ‘lean’ and get some feedback on my idea. I got all this and more! Great connections, practical advice and the icing on the cake: momentum for my idea.” – Nick Graham, Founder Bucket Buddies
